Hibernian Sign Runar Hauge From FK Bodø/Glimt!

We are delighted to announce the signing of 20-year-old winger Runar Hauge from Norwegian champions FK Bodø/Glimt.

The exciting winger has put pen-to-paper on a three-and-a-half-year deal, which runs until the summer of 2025.

Hauge, who is good friends with new boy Elias Melkersen, has been capped by Norway’s youth team from U15 to U19 and is considered as one of the top young talents in his home nation.

The pacey wide-man spent the 2021 season on loan in Norway’s second-tier with IL Stjørdals/Blink, scoring three goals and setting up two for his teammates.

Alongside this, he has also spent time at Grorud Idrettslag and made 11 appearances for the current Norwegian Champions FK Bodø/Glimt.

Hauge comes from a footballing family and is the younger brother of AC Milan winger Jens Petter Hauge, who is currently on loan with Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt.

Now a Hibee, he will continue to progress in the Development Squad before progressing into the First Team with Shaun Maloney.

On Hauge’s arrival, Academy Director Steve Kean commented:

“When the fans get to see him, they will see someone with incredible pace. He can play wide left, wide right and he can play as a 10.

“He is a set-piece specialist who is incredibly good in one-on-on situations. He likes to get at players and uses his pace to get past players. He has added assists to his game as well, he can spot a final pass and is a player that will definitely get the fans off their seats.

“He is something that we have been missing in the Academy recently, so we are looking forward to seeing him feature in the Development Squad games initially.

“We are absolutely delighted to have him in the building. We feel that Hibs is the perfect club for him to come and develop his talents.”
